Depression is a clinically diagnosed mental illness which affects at least 300 million people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. A media report citing the Philippine Psychiatric Association estimated that one in five adult Filipinos have mental disorders.
Some symptoms of depressive disorder, as listed by the Department of Health, are excessive guilt or feelings of worthlessness; diminished ability to concentrate, or indecisiveness; significant weight loss or weight gain; lack of sleep or oversleep; fatigue or loss of energy; psychomotor agitation and slowness; and recurrent thoughts of deaths or suicide.
Anxiety and Depression is no laughing matter.
